Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion is a truly independent and original band". The whole band, in its entirety, creates a luxurious and irresistible sound, displaying great skills and artistic finesse. Zoë Schwarz' dynamic and commanding vocal delivery is both eclectic and suave at the same time; just like a chameleon, one part Janis Joplin, one Billie Holiday, and one Nina Simone.

The band's exciting live set is based around rootsy originals; featuring strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves featuring Rob's electrifying, and unmistakable touch and flow on guitar. The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ and Paul Robinson-drums (Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney to name a few) bring massive musical authority and the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions.

Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion have made a considerable impact these last five years, and is one of the band's that have added a fresh approach and vibrancy to the UK jazz & blues scene.
